Normally velocities (when read through the input file) are just accepted
as they are (no postprocessing, i.e. rescaling or vcom removal).

But in your case you're explicitely asking for


what this keyword does is:
(1) apply constraints at the 0 step of the MD (so that you don't see  
any jump between the
step nr.0 and the nr. 1 in the energy)
(2) after application of constraints rescale consistently the initial  
energy of the system..

Now in your case you don't have any constraint that requires  
specifically the application
of initial constraints, because fixed atoms have just to stay fixed  
(the story is different if you
want to keep bonds constrained or anything else).
But since you asked for :


this means that once the velocities of the fixed atoms are nullified  
the velocities of the all particles
are scaled in such a way to get the requested temperature.
If you dont' want that, please remove the keyword:


No bugs at the moment  ;-)..
